This was my outfit for the 2010 Preview Best Dressed Ball. Total opposite of my outfit last year (you can find it here too in my chictopia blog) haha! The theme this year was a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen. I decided to go for one of his less recognized collections (yet still reminiscent of his signature style), so this dress was based on a peg from his F/W 2009 RTW collection. The genius behind this dress was none other than my friend Patrick Galang who is a very talented local designer. Many have said that he is like the Philippines’ very own combination of Alexander Wang and Rick Owens due to his edgy, avant-garde style, and I definitely agree with that statement! I’ve been attending the ball for around five years now and I have to say that last night’s ball was the best so far! Everyone was dressed to the nines in their own versions and interpretations of Alexander McQueen’s greatest works. Philippine fashionistas definitely went all out to make the late designer proud. Long live McQueen!
